Greetings! One of my sons is working on a school project about Classic Islam and the Arabian Peninsula. As we researched the Islamic alphabet, we realized that there was no word that began with the letter "X". My question is whether someone might know of an Islamic, Arabic or English word that begins with "X" AND relates to Classic Islam in some way. It needs to be tangible so that we can find a picture on the web. Thank you so much in advance for your kind assistance. I have seen this question posted on several forums, but have never see an answer. Have a good day! Gary

It turns out that the philospher Xenophan (430 - 354 B.C.) is known for his writings on the history of his own times, preserving the sayings of Socrates, and the life of ancient Greece. He was also a scholar of Plato and Aristotle capturing much of their philosophy. Aristotle was a special favorite of Islamic scholars and thinkers, such as Avicenna and Averroes, particularly for his "Ethics." Much of what remains of the Greek classics was saved by Xenophan, translated into classical Arabic and interpreted by the Arabs.

There is the tie-in and the letter "x" for our alphabet project that describes Islamic subjects that begin with an "x". Thank you for looking. Now we all know! Peace be with you!
